and to establish the Empire the Char Un were key in many battles
and actions with their light cavalry and awe inspiring strategic
speed. They gained a reputation for ferocity that barely lives up

were being tested by their gods and they set about making the land
useful to themselves. They performed a vast ritual that culminated
in liquid fire dripping from the sun and scouring the forest from
the land. They fought a long and hard campaign to drive the surviving
elves from the newly formed steppe before they could make it their
